Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu on Friday said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) decided to delay his interrogation after he told them he wasn’t feeling well.
He is facing interrogation regarding alleged conspiracy, illicit asset purchase, money laundering and false asset declaration.
The investigation started on Tuesday which lasted about 9 hours before he was released on administrative bail and asked to report back on Wednesday.
He was at the anti-graft commission on Wednesday, but was however reportedly released according to the EFCC after symptoms of high blood pressure was suspected while he was being interrogated.
His spokesman, Uche Anichukwu, however noted that his boss wasn’t interrogated on Wednesday.
“There was no interrogation whatsoever on Wednesday, let alone presentation of so-called additional “facts” that purportedly triggered his blood pressure,” Mr Anichukwu said.
1Push Naija and other media previously reported that the Deputy Senate President suffered high blood pressure while being interrogated.
His spokesman however noted that Ekweremadu convince the doctors at the commission that he was too indisposed to be interrogated.
“It was agreed that a new date would be fixed for continuation of the interview,” Mr Anichukwu added.
